In case anyone is looking for an MQTT interface to Pixelblaze, I just posted my latest version.
If you’re not familiar with MQTT, I highly recommend this for automating your Pixelblaze systems if you want to get away from directly using HTTP and/or Websockets.
Most of the major home automation platforms support MQTT, and certainly you can hook it up to visual platforms like Node-RED to control your Pixelblazes without directly writing any code.
(Also, having both synchronous and async versions of the Python API is just plain cool. Thanks, @Nick_W! )
